Southwest Arkansas Beekeepers Association is continuing a youth “Junior Beekeeping” program started last year. The two-year program provides beekeeping education and guidance to youths ages 8 through nineteen and teaches them skills to continue the hobby into later life.
Successful completion of the two-year program earns the youth a hive of bees and certification. At least one parent or legal adult guardian must accompany Junior Beekeepers during workshops, meetings and other activities of the program. Any youths who are allergic to bee stings may not participate in this program.
Interested parties may contact Frankie Ingersoll at 870-826-3226 for an application. Applications must be received by February 15.
